The Surface sediment samples were analyzed for grain size, carbonates (CaCO3), organic Matter (OM) to obtain a preliminary view of its environmental conditions off Pondicherry along the southeast coast. India. Investigations on the accumulation of heavy metals (Mn, Cr, Cu,Cd, Ni, Pb ,Zn,) in sediments using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer at off Pondicherry coast, lying along the southeast coast of India. In sediments, the order was Cr>MN>Pb>Zn>Cu>Ni>Cd. The high concentration of sand in… CONTINUE READING
